Health care-associated infections result in a staggering number of preventable patient deaths per year. Numerous point-of-practice initiatives and action plans have been implemented, requiring ongoing and continuing education for practicing clinicians. Equally important is the implementation of prevention practices and protocols throughout programs responsible for preparing health care providers. The use of simulation as an experiential form of learning is effective in nursing education as fundamental concepts and best practices in sepsis prevention are repeated and reinforced.
